Death to mosquitoes...
Researchers are using high resolution cameras to locate female larvae bearing mosquitoes (since they are the ones that bite) and using tracking data from the camera to aim a low power laser at the bug based on it's "wing flapping signature" then killing them by melting their wings off in mid-flight. Apparently, they can distinguish between male mosquitoes and female mosquitoes by the frequency of their wings. Only the females bearing larvae are targeted. The laser killing device will have application possibilities in poorer countries where malaria commonly kills many children.
